Hi Jess - Thanks for that post. I completely agree. Throwing Stones was, in most cases, a huge post-space letdown.

Yet thousands would sing, "ashes, ashes"....Then NFA(great, now I have to stand here and clap rhythmically until they decide to play another tune). So, the show was essentially over when the first notes of Throwin Stones was played. It then came down to the Encore and they were hit and miss during the Throwin Stones Era.

My favorite encore was Baby Blue. I liked the slower encores. The JBGs or US Blues never thrilled me as encores. I'd take a Black Muddy or Brokedown anyday.

Happy Holidays everybody!

I like Throwing Stones and Jerry's role in it, though the crowd's NFA ending got to be overplayed.

Still they were better than the other "Beautiful Bob" vehicle (once a used car dealer on Market St), Another Saturday Night.
